An Arm of One

Wow, I'm really at a loss tonight. I've been scrambling much of the day since I scheduled my surgery and then discovered I'll be out of work for 2-3 weeks. That's really not going to work for me, so hopefully we can get that shortened up! And in true AJ nature, now that I'm faced with not being able to do things, all I want to do is run and work on my house. All the things I normally avoid while vegging in front of the tube. I am the personification of 'you always want what you can't have.' Usually I reserve this mental defect for crushes and relationships, so it's nice to see I'm branching out to Things That Require My Right Arm.

I'll take "Things That Require My Right Arm" for a thousand, Alex!

What is:
Brushing my teeth (oh wait! I have an Oral B electric toothbrush. Awesome).
Wiping my privatous areaus after using the facilities
Washing my face at night
Typing (efficiently, at least)
Blowing my nose (effectively, at least)
Shooting someone with Leather Tuscadero's double gun gesture (single just doesn't cut it)
Scritching under the chin of my dog (to the degree she has become accustomed)?

Well, come to think of it, it's not like I'm curing cancer with my right arm or anything hugely important. I guess the big standout above would be the wiping thing. I'm more than fairly ambidextrous, so I think I'll survive.

But STILL - why is it I'm all rarin' to go now that I can't? I could have been running this whole time or working on my house for that matter, but instead I kept putting things off. When will I learn??

Tomorrow, I suppose. Definitely not worth getting into today. Shoot, the day's almost over. I'm sure there's something on TV... ;)

I wish you motivation, my friends!

You forgot one...

Putting on a bra.

Many years ago I broke my wrist and found this to be the hardest thing while cast-bound (my thumb was also casted)

Good luck with this- when is it?
